REDDING, Calif. - The city of Redding is asking for public input on city-wide Fiber Broadband internet proposal.

The city said Municipal Fiber Broadband is nearly 2,000 times faster than 5G, making it the fastest technology currently available.

It also said that fiber broadband would be significantly cheaper and would bring more competition for other internet providers.

City Manager Barry Tippin said this plan is an important step towards modernizing Redding.

"Fiber is an essential element of the future and its economy," Tippin said. "Vice Council Macaulay brought this forward to council and we agreed that we should study this so we've hired consultants and we've been doing a study - looking into cost, what elements should be required and whether it would be beneficial from a community standpoint."
